The Life Tony winner Lillias White, who stepped into the role of Hermes in Broadway's Hadestown
September 13, 2022, ends her extended run at the Walter Kerr Theatre March 17.

The Broadway favorite, the first woman to play the role, succeeded Tony winner André De Shields in the part. White has also been seen on Broadway in Chicago, The Life, Fela!, Dreamgirls, Cats, Once on This Island, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

March 17 also marks the final performance of The Summer I Turned Pretty‘s Lola Tung, whose limited engagement as Eurydice in the Tony-winning musical began February 9.

As previously reported, Olivier nominee Jon Jon Briones and daughter Isa Briones will join the cast of the hit musical March 19
as Hermes and Eurydice, respectively.

Hadestown also currently stars Jordan Fisher as Orpheus, Grammy winner Ani DiFranco as Persephone, and Grammy nominee
Phillip Boykin as Hades.

They are joined by Belén Moyano, Kay Trinidad, and Brit West as the
Fates. The chorus of Workers is played by Emily Afton, Malcolm Armwood,
Chibueze Ihuoma, Alex Puette, and Grace Yoo, and the company also
includes swings Sojourner Brown, Brandon Cameron, Tara Jackson, Max
Kumangai, Alex Lugo, and Tanner Ray Wilson.

Singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell’s folk- and jazz-infused musical
layers the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice with that of Hades and
Persephone, intertwining the actions—and consequences—of gods and
mortals. Hadestown originally began as a theatrical concert performed by Mitchell.
